Looking for a Live in Nanny? When you hire a Live-In Nanny, you are creating a personal bond that involves you and your children, so it may take some time to make everything work, and to see the real benefits of having a full-time in-home child care provider to help you bring up your children.
Before the interviewing process, outline in detail the schedule you will need your Nanny to follow and exactly what role you expect your Nanny to fill. These should be laid out in detail within the Nanny Work agreement. To find the right person for the job, you will have to be both honest and realistic in your expectations for what duties you think Live-In Nannies should handle. Negotiate a fair salary and make sure that your potential Live-In Nanny is comfortable with the housing arrangements you plan to provide. One important thing to remember when you are looking for Live-In Nannies is that you are not hiring a housekeeper or a personal assistant. That is, of course, unless you specify that you are interested in hiring someone willing to fill more roles than in-home child care itself. In this case, you may want to look specifically for Full Time Nannies who are also housekeepers, which Nairobi Nanny can also help with).
When you hire a Live-In Nanny, you are hiring a dedicated child care professional. Live-In Nannies may hold a degree in early childhood education, may be healthcare professionals, or may be experienced Nannies who have decided to make a career out of bringing up children. For a talented, creative individual, working as a provider of in-home child care is a challenging and rewarding career.
Make sure that your home is ready to welcome someone offering full-time in-home child care. Make sure that the living quarters for your Live-In Nanny are adequate, and private and that you are willing and able to give your Nanny privacy during off-hours. Most Live-In Nannies will expect a one day off a week, and you should negotiate a fair work agreement that includes rules for overtime, time off, vacation and on-call hours.
If you want your Live-In Nanny to perform duties beyond in-home child care, such as light cleaning or meal preparation (which would also be considered a Nanny housekeeper), or to run errands or help you with at-home office duties, make sure that your Nanny has enough time at home-when the kids aren't around-to finish the tasks you expect. And when it comes to overtime or extra work, although overtime rates do not apply to a Live-In Nanny your Nanny should be given extra compensation.
A Live-In Nanny is not only a talented caregiver, but also should be a family friend for life. Be fair and honest with your Nanny. From working out the work agreement to watching your children grow, it is extremely important to build a trusting relationship with your Live-In Nanny, one that will last a lifetime.
